Consider the size of the vehicle or vehicles you wish to store, as well as any equipment or supplies. Be sure to measure the dimensions
of the door on inside storage units -- some lawn care truck trailers, for example, may be too wide or tall.
Many of our locations offer a monthly car-starting option, in which for a small fee, our Property Manager will start your vehicle for you
once a month. This is a valuable feature for vehicle owners who will be away for an extended period of time, such as vacationers or those
away on military leave. Ask your Property Manager if this option is offered
If you plan to frequently use stored vehicles, such as moving trucks, construction trucks or delivery vans, you may wish to choose a unit
close to the facility entrance for easy access.
Since all of our storage facilities rent month-to-month, choosing self storage to store vehicles during the off-season or during extended
periods of travel is an excellent solution.
If storing a car, truck or van outside, consider purchasing a cover. If the vehicle is unsightly, the Property Manager may request that
you keep it covered.
It is common practice and acceptable for classic and sports car owners to put carpet down in an indoor unit.
Some basic ground rules for vehicle storage include:
Wheeled vehicles must be in drivable condition (they can’t be towed in and put on blocks)
Tires must be inflated and in good shape
Use of a storage unit as a workshop is prohibited, as the facility is not equipped for proper disposal of chemicals
Most vehicles must be registered and insured, and you must provide proof of each before a unit will be offered to you
If your vehicle is leaking any type of fluids, it is preferred that a piece of cardboard is left under the car at all
times to protect the integrity of the storage unit
Our Property Managers are very knowledgeable about getting the most out of self storage, so be sure to ask them any questions
you may have about storing your vehicle.
